Each issue of Embellish contains a mix of techniques, articles, ideas, profiles & inspirational stories, all related to cloth and clothing. Projects include dye processes such as shibori, orizomegami, plant dyes, or the layering of colour to create complex cloth. Well known textile artists such as Marie-Therese Wisniowski and Jane Dunnewold are regular contributors in the ArtCloth columns.
Fabric manipulation techniques are examined, whether by hand or machine, or with the help of felt or dissolvables to create surface texture. Machine embellishers or needle punch machines are often featured, as you can create amazingly tactile surfaces in a short period of time, with little experience. We show you how.
Repurposed textiles have their own regular column, as do profiles of up and coming students and designers. Projects related to textile applications, incorporating the use of fabric, yarn, felt and/or fibre are always featured.
A different geographical location is looked at from a sensory perspective in each issue, showing you regional sights and textile delights in a double page spread, from textile experts.
Embellish often features hand beading with simple embroidery stitches and introduces new textile products, to give you all you need to create your own unique cloth.
